FALL/SPRING 2014-2015 MUSEUM PRESCHOOL

This month on March 21st marks the beginning of Spring, though you wouldn’t think it to look outside lately with the cold weather. Our local astronomy club is gearing up for their Messier Marathon. This Scavenger hunt through the sky will jump from nebulas, to star clusters, and galaxies galore.
